Has this thing died?  There was so much hype running up to the initial offering......and then nothing?  Has anyone received one of these?

I wouldn't call it hype, but a good bit of interplay between designer and end users.  FF is probably still juggling 4 balls at once.  I can juggle 3 and that's hard enough.  When he's ready to vend he will undoubtedly post here.

Given this post that FFD made on November 1 (linked below), I have to wonder if there will ever be more than one production run on the TS-2.  If the guy's got no incentive to make the product, financial or otherwise, then I'm not sure if we should ever expect to see much more on this.

No, FiveFish did NOT want money up front.  He was very clear about that.  He did compile a "waiting list" for the 1st run though.  Be patient fellows.  I'm sure that we will enjoy the finished product when FF is ready to release it.  Thank you FF!

I'm sure it's been discussed, but who runs a signal to +17?

I do all the time, you probably do to.  The V3 puts out like 24-25dbu on the analog outputs when the digital output is at 0dbFS.  So unless you run your V3 very, very low into the 722, you'll easily put out 12-17dbu.

When I ran V3(digi) > Sony D50 and also ran V3(analog) > 722/702 at the same time, I usually shot for digital peaks on the D50 at -6dbFS to -3dbFS, so at that point I'd be sending ~20dbu to the 722/702.
